The pair, who have been married since 2015, also uploaded pictures of another home they’re taking inspiration from, which they captioned: ‘Stunning homes we are trying to base ours on. 

‘Love this white/Georgian style, we are thinking more of a modern twist though…. do you like?’

‘A hobby and side hustle that I love but last July me and @michkeegan started building our dream home… we debated sharing our journey & after a lot of thought we decided we wanted to bring you along with us!’ (sic)  

All five bedroom feature an en-suite, while cupboards are littered through the floor and a vast drive will accommodate a plethora of cars. 

Their planning agent previously said: ‘This new house has been carefully designed so that it is similar in area and volume to what is currently on the site.

‘The new house will sit further back on the site and will create a much more functional family dwelling for our clients.

‘The existing house has been extended several times and is not functional, therefore a new house would be a better use of the site.’

IIProp (International Industrial Properties) has successfully delivered the initial phase of its built-to-suit project in the Spanish city of Murcia. The joint venture has also launched a new development project at a prime location in Nadarzyn, Warsaw South, Poland. The scheme is located in Murcia’s San Andres industrial park and offers 22,346m². The project is set to add another building of over 23,000m², bringing the total development area to 46,600m² GLA. Construction of a 23,000m² follow-on component is under way and scheduled for completion in January 2023. The project marks an important milestone for the IIProp’s expansion in Spain, where the platform has secured pipeline for development of some 63,000m² GLA in the Murcia and Barcelona regions. The development comes with excellent connectivity and visibility as it sits alongside the A7 highway, part of the Mediterranean transit corridor that links Spanish and Portuguese ports with mainland Europe. The project is set to obtain “Very Good” BREEAM certificate, which will be supported by green solutions such as solar panels, charging stations for electric cars, power sockets for electric bicycles and scooters as well as bicycle parking space and a bee shelter.

 

Nebil Senman, Managing Partner at Griffin Capital Partners, said: “The logistics market in Europe experienced an unprecedented growth during the pandemic and despite the geopolitical turmoil the tenant demand remains strong. We selectively are developing projects in Murcia and Warsaw with highest ESG standards and securing highest tenant covenants to fulfill core investor’s requirements. We plan to continue to build up carefully our European logistics footprint by selectively adding projects in core European markets as well as through converting our well-positioned land bank into standing assets.”

 

Maciej Dyjas, Managing Partner at Griffin Capital Partners, commented: “The projects in Murcia and Warsaw are another success stories in our strategic partnership with Panattoni. We continue to screen new European markets for entry and already begun working on potential development projects in countries like France, Italy, and Austria. In parallel, the IIProp’s pipeline stands at ca. 430,000m² GLA, despite latest disposals completed in Germany.
